    Learning about drug store products that make up artists swear by got us wondering about our favorite chefs — what are their grocery store hacks? Specifically, what pre-made items do they buy at the store, and how do they elevate them to taste like they came out of a Michelin-starred restaurant?

    In search of answers, we decided to ask a few big-time chefs, from Marc Murphy to Anne Burrell, for some tips. Click through to learn tricks from the greats — including how to make your store-bought pesto pop, imaginative ways to reinvent packaged salsa and mac 'n' cheese, and much more.
